03-10-2021 • 27 min

Join Tyler Riches, a third-year student majoring in human geography and minoring in women and gender studies and urban studies as we dive deeper into the topic of student finance from a student's perspective. Tyler is also UTSU's (University of Toronto Student Union) current Vice-President Public & University Affairs as he will be giving us some insight in his role on the UTSU. This episode is the second part one of our three part series on Student Finance. You can find part one in the link below. We’ll explore why tuition costs have been rising so much in the last decades, the perspective of students on this issue and the advocacy they do to change things.
